Invisalign®

Invisalign is a nearly invisible orthodontic technology used to correct an array of dental issues, both mild and severe. Unlike the bars and brackets of metal braces, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made plastic aligners.

Here’s how it works: Based on your smile goals, we’ll develop a customized treatment plan and give you a series of custom-crafted aligners to wear. The aligners exert a gentle pressure on your teeth, gradually shifting them into place. Roughly every two weeks, you’ll change out your current set of Invisalign aligners with a newer pair to move through your treatment.

Some of the best benefits of Invisalign is that the aligners are clear and removable. This means that no one has to know you’re wearing them because they can’t see them. And you don’t have to give up your favorite foods. Not even popcorn is off limits when you’re wearing Invisalign!

The Invisalign Process

Invisalign is a popular orthodontic option that allows you to straighten your teeth without drawing attention to your braces. Here’s what you can expect during the course of your orthodontic treatment.


1

Consultation

If you want to learn more about Invisalign and see if it’s right for you, schedule an appointment with a Preferred Invisalign Provider. The San Antonio dentists at Texas Dental are Preferred Invisalign Providers, so call us for a consultation. During your appointment, we’ll go over your case and answer any questions or concerns you may have about Invisalign treatments, costs, or insurance coverage.


2

Customized Treatment Plan

To begin your actual treatment, we will first take X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth. This helps us create a completely customized Invisalign treatment plan. With Invisalign, most patients achieve a straight, healthy smile within one to two years. We’ll give you a more specific timeline during your consultation.


3

Wearing Your Aligners

We’ll give you a series of clear, BPA-free aligners designed specifically for your mouth and treatment plan. You can easily pop the aligners out to eat and drink. No food is off-limits, unlike with metal braces. Just be sure to brush and floss properly after eating and drinking. Once you’re done, put your aligners back in to continue your treatment. For best results, wear your Invisalign aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day.


4

Changing Your Aligners

Rather than coming in for “tightening” appointments, like you do with traditional braces, Invisalign only requires you to transition between aligner sets. Simply pop in the next aligners in your sequence, and you’re good to go for another two weeks. Every six weeks or so, you’ll have a brief check-up appointment to ensure that your treatment is going smoothly.


5

Completion

Congratulations! Your patience has paid off, and you are now rewarded with the picture-perfect smile you’ve always wanted. To protect your investment and ensure your straight teeth stay in their proper position, we recommend consulting your dentist about wearing retainers.
